    I'm interested in upgrading to 3.0 either by being added to someone else's dev account or paying for my own. What would make the difference is whether paying the $99 enables you to beta test 3.0 applications like AIM. I'd like to try out the push notifications and other api features but just being on 3.0 firmware with applications made for older firmware won't provide those benefits.

    Can anyone let me know if being an iPhone developer allows you to beta other apps?

    Thanks!

    Don't upgrade. Wait until it's smoother, or Apple releases it final.

    3.0 beta was released for developers to test and develop their apps. If you are not going to stick with 3.0 dont install it, too many folks are clogging up threads with posts about how to get back to 2.2.1

    No... you can't beta other developers applications unless they give it to you.

    Believe me, I wouldn't be clogging up threads asking stupid questions that I could find out easily on my own. I probably should have rephrased my question. Once you pay the $99, is there a developer Forum for developers to request people to beta their apps?

    No. AOL is not going to give you their app to test. They have internal testing for that.

    Basically unless you are currently involved with developers for beta testing their products and you have dedicated development devices its not worth the hassle.
